The deeply religious Duggar family (as in the 19 Kids and Counting Duggars) were the victims of an extortion attempt several months back. On Thursday a judge sentenced Teresa Hunt to four months of house arrest for attempting the crime.

According to a report from RadarOnline, Hunt claimed that the Duggar’s cousin, Amy Duggar, was having an illicit affair with singer James Garrett. It turns out a grudge Hunt held over a payment dispute for professional photography s19 Kids and Countinghe did for Garrett triggered the senseless criminal act.

Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar are the parents of nineteen children and the grandparents of a granddaughter and a grandson. They live highly moral lives as does their extended family including cousin Amy Duggar. Hunt very clearly knew her allegations could wreak havoc for the entire Duggar family, but what she didn’t understand was their strong faith in God and in one another. The Duggar’s knew Amy didn’t do what Hunt claimed. James Garrett even came to her defense with a series of photos that showed the only relationship the two shared was a musical one.

Do you think Teresa Hunt’s sentence is harsh enough for the crime she tried committing? After an attempt at extorting $10,000 from the Duggars and Discovery Communications—the company that owns the TLC network on which 19 Kids and Counting appears—it seems she’s been let off the hook very easily.

Hundreds attend Jubilee Duggar’s memorial

(PEOPLE.com) — On Wednesday, an unseasonably warm winter day in Springdale, Arkansas, friends and family of Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar gathered to pay their respects to the couple’s 20th child, a stillborn baby girl named Jubilee Shalom.

“I feel a great sorrow and grief, and yet at the same time I have a peace in my heart,” said Michelle. “This is so sad, but I have peace. There are people praying for us and angels surrounding our home, and there was peace in the sorrow and the grief. Those feelings are mingled together.”

The reality stars of TLC’s “19 Kids and Counting” discovered on December 8 at a routine doctor’s appointment that their 20th child no longer had a heartbeat. Michelle, 45, miscarried the baby on December 11, the day after their youngest child, Josie Brooklyn, born at 25 weeks gestation and just over 1 pound, turned 2 years old.

A letter Michelle recorded for Jubilee was played at the memorial. She wanted to “pour my heart out to Jubilee, and I knew there was no way I could read this at the service,” she explains.

The Duggars also contacted the nonprofit organization Now I Lay Me Down To Sleep, which helps families deal with the miscarriage and loss of their babies, to take photos the family could keep and use at the memorial service. Some of those photos have been released without Jim Bob and Michelle’s consent, according to a spokesperson for the family, and were intended for private use only.

The Duggars, devout Christians who have left the number of children they have “up to God,” say they will now quietly spend time together with their family.

“We have so much to be thankful for,” Michelle says. “I know that in the days and weeks to come there will be other things that I will walk though, and grief that will come, and there will be times that we will worship and sing praises. I know that God will allow me to continue to release the emotions that I will release.”

Physically, Michelle says she has been resting and feels well.

Jim Bob added: “I really believe that God sees the bigger picture. I hope that her short life can encourage other people who have gone through things like this. It was very healing, and we have precious memories.”
